Building a Computer

It has been decided!
I'm going to build a computer with a help of my brother's friend =)

as i have mentioned last post, all MY computers are running too slow for Diablo 3 to run smoothly
in order to solve that problem new computer pieces are being shipped right now!!

Here are the shopping list to building a fine computer (for me i think it might last till life time hypothetically speaking)
All the main pieces are bought from

1. COOLER MASTER HAF 922 RC-922M-KKN1-GP Black Steel + Plastic and Mesh Bezel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

2. Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-CoreDesktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 3000 BX80623I52500K

3.ASUS P8Z77-V LK LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

4.G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL

5. Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

9.Razer Abyssus High Precision Optical Gaming Mouse

10. Razer Goliathus Standard M-Speed (Fragged)

only thing i'm missing right now are a decent monitor and a keyboard...
i'm deciding if i should get the neutral keyboard or not because i have a carpal tunnel on my right wrist.... other than that this is the end of my shopping list for making a computer.

now i'm off to start a week of nothing but resting!

UPDATE May 24, 2012
I got all my pieces together for the tower
there are 6 fans running  which i thing it's should be enough to keep them cool =D

11. For the monitor, I bought 24" Asus VS 247H-P from Fry's Electronics...

12. Internet access: I wanted to have my computer to be wifi, so I got D-Link DWA-140 RangeBooster N USB Adapter and so far the internet reception is really good; never got any lagging problem while playing Diablo 3 and having 3-4 other computers running

13. For the Keyboard, i'm using an Ergonomics keyboard.. hopefully this will help with my carpal tunnel

14.  The monitor is not speaker equipped so i'm using my old speakers

15.  As for a gel pad to reduce the pain/ pressure from the mouse, i'm using a mini dog plush

with all of these, the computer is set and up and running smoothly~
